Opportunities are always here in America if you are willing to take a few risks. For citizens or permanent residents, that can mean moving from Ohio to Washington State to land that perfect job. It could require packing up and moving across the border from Idaho to Washington to raise your family in a specific community.
You may have heard the adage in real estate that what matters is “location, location, location.”

Some people ask our DUI attorneys in Spokane, Washington, what is the difference between a DUI and a DWI? While there may be legal meanings to these terms, any sort of vernacular DUI / DWI means a driver has been found with a blood alcohol level beyond the legal limit. A DUI, or “driving under the influence” means the driver has been using drugs with or without alcohol. It’s easy for a driver to get lost in the details. The bottom line is this; you can lose your right to drive if you are charged with either!
